Children of the Future
A yellow school bus, small and rustic looking, is parked in front of the little red brick schoolhouse. When Telly the bus driver arrives at the school to pick up the kids, they are missing---all except for one, Billy. Where is everyone? Telly and Billy are determined to find the answers.
The little town of Rocky Flats is stirred into a frenzy. Nothing like this has ever happened. Where have they disappeared? Why? As the clock ticks and the little town rallies together in the search, will they find the children before it's too late?
"Jane Suen writes in such a way that you're completely captivated. Her choice of words have purposeful actions and I was motivated to finish the story and my interest was peaked throughout the entire book. This is an excellent story that every parent needs to read and this book should be recommended as a must for all middle school students. I highly recommend this book because Jane Suen has proven to be not only a philosopher of today's social problems but a person who wants to help cure the problem of violence in our schools. Excellent!"
Flowers in December
A man goes home to bury his mother but finds himself.

Caught in the period of his life where the vibrancy of youth has diminished and the prospect of becoming middle-aged is looming, Connor finds that he is suddenly alone in the world and must somehow reshape his future and face his own mortality.
With only Tom, the family's orange tabby cat, as his constant companion, he considers new possibilities and new directions. But will Connor be able to lay the ghosts of his past to rest? And will his return later, to the place he once called home, be enough to let him break free from the remorse which he has carried since he was 18?
In this tender, heartwarming portrait of a man who finds himself trapped between his past, his present and the future, where will this new journey lead Connor and what will the future hold when he gets there?
